Kinsler for Uggla and Valverde? I like that trade. I think Uggla improves, and though no Kinsler is still a really valuable 2B this season. It gives you a solid closer too, which you could use.
You might also think about throwing Bay into the deal. Just to get rid of him. No, I joke. But if you could add Bay and get back anything useful I'd do it. But I'm about as down on Bay as anyone could be. I think he's useless at best.
I like this trade this trade for you. I know Kinlser is swinging a hot bat and Uggla is struggling but I think Uggla turns it around soon. Plus you always have to worry about Kinsler's injury concerns. Not to mention that you get Valverde in the deal is another plus. I would pull the trigger on this one.
Yeah, for the most part you'd probably be getting the better deal...Uggla will definitely hit the ball and be productive in that lineup even if he's not doing so well right now...Kinsler will have to cool off eventually and yeah u could use Valverde...I think it would be a solid move
I agree with the rest here. Uggla isn't that much of a drop off from Kinsler (assuming Kinsler stayed healthy all year...which is nearly impossible), + you get a solid closer (which you need). I'd do this one.
